Anti-Semitism Continues To Grow In The United States

WASHINGTON — President Obama warned of growing anti-Semitism in the United States and the world Wednesday as he honored two Americans and two Poles who helped save Jewish lives during World War II.

"Here, tonight, we must confront the reality that around the world, anti-Semitism is on the rise. We cannot deny it," Obama said at a Holocaust remembrance ceremony at the Israeli embassy Wednesday night. He cited Jews fleeing European cities, attacks on Jewish centers in Mumbai, India and Overland Park, Kan. and swastikas on college campuses.

"When we see all that and more, we must not be silent," Obama said.

Obama spoke at a "Righteous Among the Nations" awards ceremony on International Holocaust Remembrance Day and the 71st anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp, which honors those who rescued Jews during the Holocaust.

Obama was the first president to speak at the Israeli embassy. He was introduced by Steven Spielberg, the director of the Holocaust movie Schindler's List. "This president has a Jewish soul," Spielberg said.

Obama honored four people who helped save Jewish lives during World War II, including Army Master Sgt. Roddie Edmonds, who was detained at a German prison camp with 1,000 other American soldiers. When a Nazi commander asked the Jewish soldiers to identify themselves, Edmonds ordered all his men to step forward. ""We are all Jews here," Edmonds said.

"I cannot imagine a greater expression of Christianity than to say, 'I, too, am a Jew,'" Obama said. "An attack on any faith is an attack on all of our faiths. It is an attack on that golden rule at the heart of so many faiths — that we ought to do unto others as we would have done to us."

Also honored Wednesday night: Lois Gunden, a 26-year-old French language teacher from Indiana who saved Jewish children while working at a Mennonite school in southern France during the war, and Polish citizens Walery and Maryla Zbijewski, who housed a girl from the Warsaw ghetto.


Before I get into the real commentary, I was wondering just how many Jews are in Mumbai (formerly Bombay), India?  You don't usually think of India when you think of Jews.  I don't at least. But it does go to show that they are everywhere.

When I hear that anti-Semitism is on the rise, it gives me a sense of hope.  Perhaps people really are waking up, and they are NOT becoming more tolerant as the liberals would have us believe.

Of course we all know how the Jew likes to exaggerate.  They can take a case of the sniffles and turn it into pneumonia.

At least they didn't drag out those tired old concentration camp stories again for this article. They mentioned a German prison camp.  I assume since the people in question were soldiers it was a POW Camp aka a Stalag.  It generally was German policy to house Jewish POWs separately from non-Jewish POWs.  In my opinion it was unnecessary as a POW is a POW.   But it's past history now so it doesn't matter.

As to the phonies being "honored", I would love to see the proof of their "good deeds".  I suppose we're supposed to just accept their words and not question - as usual.

But anyway, the important thing is that more and more people are seeing them for what they are.

Finally, I would also like to remind everyone that it's not the Jews themselves we hate, it's what they do.  Judeo-Capitalism is their creation.  Although many Aryans are involved, the Jews are the originators of the system.  Those Jews - mostly the "little guys" that just want to do honest work, and get along with people, we have no quarrel with.  It's the exploiters, both Jew and non-Jew, and the Zionist propagandists like Steven Speilberg that we object to.

Dan 88!
